Rustic Decorations


Spring is here, and over at Garden and Gun they have a great slideshow of some ‘new’ rustic gardening tools and decorations.  This wheelbarrow fits into both categories as it is completely functional, and also has a cool rustic finish that looks great.

While it looks great as a decoration, it would be hard for me not to use it, or ‘put it to work’, as their description states:

“The rustic patina of this vintage mid-century pushcart from Terrain—once used at London’s Chelsea Flower Market—makes it a stylish alternative to the traditional wheelbarrow. Put it to work, or stash it on the porch as a chic display for seasonal blooms ($1,400; 610-459-2400).”


This garden tool set also has a great vintage quality and rustic appeal that looks incredible.

These tools are hand crafted and are made from bronze, which is lighter and actually improves your soil, as they say, “These handsome garden tools from PKS aren’t just for looks. Handcrafted from hardworking bronze, they are also lighter than many iron or steel versions and naturally rustproof, and they improve soil quality to boot (clockwise from top left: shovel, $198; short-handled hoe, $69; long-handled hoe, $96; rake, $118; weeder, $44; Tie on this embroidered linen apron by Coral & Tusk to keep dirt off of clean duds. The fabric gets softer with wear ($90; coral”


  The rustic decorations pictured below are hand made by metal sculptor Chase Allen.  These nautical works of art hang easily on any wall inside your house, and they make great summer gifts too.
